Last Monday evening at about five o'clock, while the jurors were in their seats in the jury box, a large piece of the plastering overhead gave way, and tumbled without discrimination upon the luckless heads of those sitting in its way. Mr. Henry Calton was considerably hurt on the head, te plastering falling directly upon him. Another juror had his hand badly cut; while another one recieved a full share of bruises and perhaps his full proportion of fright-When you consider that the entire weight of all the upper story and the cupalo, which consists of very heavy oak timber, rests completely on the lower walls, it is to be wondered at that we have not been called upon to dig out dead men long before this. In the future leave your heads outside when you go inside to do your courting.
